Step up your race-day style with four chic fashion trends to nail this summer

If you thought the racing season finished with the Melbourne Cup, think again. In fact, it's just getting started!

The theme for the luxe experience is French Riviera so whilst spring racing is all about pastels and florals, summer is all about chic Mediterranean vibes like you've just stepped off a plane from Côte d'Azur.

Win a double pass to see the Sam Mendes World War I epic, 1917

Sam Mendes, the Oscar®-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917. At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them. The Weekend Edition is giving you the chance to win one of ten double passes to see 1917. Enter below for your chance to win. 1917 opens in cinemas from January 9, 2020. Competition closes Sunday, January 5 at 11:59 pm. Winners will be contacted by mail. more
